Lost device (android phone) in Bluetooth settings SOLVED

Postby foyle » 2017-11-14 21:49

Hi all
I' not exactly new to Debian I had it installed years back so I decided to try the KDE distro out about 2 weeks ago. Its been running really stable and smooth but a couple of days ago i had a problem with my bluetooth connection i.e. the adapter is switched on and recognized but the phone i had paired with a few days ago has gone fro the list and when i try to scan (blue devil) cant find the phone again, when i try to find the pc from the phone no luck either. This is what i got back on the command line with "service bluetooth status"
oot@DELL-XPS-8500:/home/foyle# sudo service bluetooth status
● bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service

Its not the bluetooth adapter as i can scan, detect, connect and move files in Windows 10 to other devices without problems?! Ive reinstalled all the bluetooth software and drivers via synaptic but any help would be much appreciated as ive no idea what has gone wrong?! I suspect that something went wrong with a recent upate?!
Thanks

Still cant fathom out why ive lost the bluetooth capability?! A few weeks ago I connected the Edimax EW-7611ULB adapter and it worked right out of the box both the wifi and bluetooth, now only the wifi works but now Debian is saying " No adapters available" in the bluetooth menu, whereas when i first posted this problem I could scan but could not find or connect to any other device ?!
Any suggestions or help on the matter would be most welcome from the more knowledgable users out there.
thanks in advance

i have now fixed the problem by following these steps, its worked like a charm!

# apt-get install build-essential git
# git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/bluetooth-4.8.git
# cd bluetooth-4.8
# cp /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/.config ./
# cp /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/Module.symvers Module.symvers
# make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build M=$(pwd) modules
# cp btusb.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/bluetooth/
# depmod -a && reboot
